For the past 3 years, the Miss New York post has been like an episode of Groundhog Day…
Miss NY crowns a winner, she goes to Atlantic City and becomes Miss America, Miss NY crowns another winner. Do you realize the state of NY has had 6 different Miss New Yorks in the past 3 years?
The good news is, the women who have taken the New York title from their Miss America winning-sisters are spectacular – Exhibit #1, Jillian Tapper – Miss New York 2014.
Jillian was the 3rd Runner up at Miss New York last year – She is a world champion baton twirler, and a sports fiend! The girl worked for the Bleacher Report, she’s interned for the New York Mets and for 2 television sports departments, worked for Seminole Sports Magazine and other sports media outlets.
Based on that information, you might think Jillian wouldn’t be ‘the pageant type’ and therefore, wouldn’t have a very strong year as Miss New York. You couldn’t be more wrong.
While serving as Miss New York, Jillian devoted herself to her personal platform called, “Amaze Me” – which heavily advocates and encourages mentor relationships. She’s partnered with some large organizations like iMentorNYC and the Mentoring Partnership of New York and has been as active as any 12 month state titleholder in the Miss America system (To learn a little more about Amaze Me visit YouAmazeMe.org).
To say we haven’t heard the last of Jillian Tapper would be a colossal understatement.
And what a wonderful opportunity to add Miss New York 2014 to her list of accomplishments. Junkies say, “GO GET ‘EM, JILLIAN – Your future is super-duper bright indeed!”
And now – Will one of the young women competing for the title of Miss New York 2015 become the 4th Miss NY in a row to be named Miss America???
